    ‘The Cowardly, The Careerists, The Vigilantes, The Commissars’ – O Canada! 


    If you’re in need of a short lunchtime/ teatime  read, I happily recommend this article by David Solway, in PJ Media.

     https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/the-aboriginal-grievance-industry-and-the-demise-of-the-university/

    It’s far too detailed in its indictment of a once reputable university in Manitoba for me to summarise usefully, but its revelations about the wilful politically-motivated suppression of uncomfortable truths – specifically, censorship of dissenting views among the Cree Indians on their history – are shockingly hard to read calmly…

    .

    ….as indeed is the experience of the honest professor who worked so hard to record those views.

    How Canada can ever progress ( and as the article makes clear, it’s not a subversion of educational values in Manitoba alone ) while its colleges are infested with ‘the dregs – the cowardly, the careerists, the vigilantes and the commissars’- is a question that one shudders to ask.

    The only consolation, and it’s no consolation at all, is that American, British and Australian institutions of higher education are similarly toxic, cess-pools teeming with left bigots and their running-dogs.

    …of ‘Indigneous Studies,’ so I gathered. .

    While the other panellists behaved like normal people, smiling and cracking the odd joke, she glowered throughout, interjecting dour, mean-spirited comments.

    Grumpy did at one point seem to get a little more animated, when she recounted the ‘abysmal ignorance’ about Aborigines expressed by some poor woman she’d met.

    But what seemed to nettle her more than ignorance about her race was that the woman apparently asked her if the professorship she held was open to everyone or was it a job only offered, on a racially discriminatory basis, to ‘indigenous’ applicants.

    Funnily enough, no answer was forthcoming on the show last week.

    Do any Oz readers know the answer?

    Was the professorial position advertised with a ‘no whites need apply’ condition attached?

    How many of these names mean anything to any of you?

    Have you read any books, articles, or even ‘letters-to-the-editor’ penned by any of them? Have you even read anything written ABOUT them?

    I need hardly continue, but one more question – do you sit down to bacon and eggs on a Sunday morning and say to the person across the table –

    ‘Hey, didya see what ‘X’ (insert any of the above) had to say about ( insert anything at all) ???’

    Unlikely – because you are a normal person.

    Okay, most of you probably have heard of Rushdie, but only because he was sentenced to death in absentia by an ignorant old savage in Tehran. Shameful, yes, but even so, I have never read Rushdie’s ‘Satanic Verses’ – have you?

    Much of what ‘intellectuals’ write is unreadable.

    They tend to write for each other.

    In other words, these waste-of-space ‘intellectuals,’ to whose collective bleat  – ‘Europe Is Coming Apart’ – the Guardian gives such prominence, are completely irrelevant to real people who get up every morning and go forth to do honest work.

    Suppose I rounded up a similar number of real, useful people, street-cleaners, shop assistants, barmaids, bank clerks, builders’ labourers, firemen, secretaries, who share my views on “Europe” or anything else and had them sign a declaration to that effect?

    Would the Guardian even bother to read it, never mind give it huge coverage?

    Not a chance, and why?

    Because they are real, useful members of the community, who do real jobs, lead normal lives and are thus of infinitely greater value to their country than any of the ‘cerebral celebs’ whose pearls of ‘wisdom’ the Guardian would have us slurp like sheep.

    It’s not just the Guardian, true.

    Even RT had an incomprehensible report on somebody called Thom Yorke, whose appearance is as unkempt as his latest infantile and ignorant outburst…

    And THAT merits newspaper coverage?

    What is wrong with the media?

    Why the obsession with self-important individuals who are of no significance except to their own kind.

      If you run through all those names listed in the Guardian, a lot of them come from East / Central Europe. If these left liberal brainiacs got out of the bubble more and listened to the real people in those countries, there would be very little meeting of minds. Poles and Czechs, Slovaks and the rest, they tend to have views like yours and mine.
      ‘intellectuals’ are a cosmopolitan, de-nationalised, rootless lot, with a few honourable exceptions. The two you have written about, that Italian and the Scot, are examples of how lost they are to all the normal bonds that bind peoples together as nations. A worthless bunch as you say, egg-heads writing stuff for other egg-heads to praise.
      It’s a bit like that Hollywood crowd, their glitterati ceremonies where they decide whose movies are the greatest, and sometimes they even get it right when the box-office takings match up with the favourites chosen by the few hundred ego-trippers at the ‘film-festivals.’
      Sometimes.
      That’s more, really, than the ‘intellectuals’ can say. Their book sales only get into even marginally significant numbers because they are named as ‘set texts’ that poor students are told to buy by leftwing lecturers.

    What Next? Fred West International Airport? 


    Unaccustomed as I am to finding myself in agreement with ‘human rights’ activists, that’s where I landed this week, after reading that Chile wants to name an international airport after its most notorious rapist.

    =

    Have you read any of Pablo Neruda’s “works?”

    I certainly haven’t.

    Have you even heard of him? I have, but only because I read a lot about leftism, on the basis that you have to know your enemy.

    That’s why I slogged through several turgid books by that Indonesian red Pramoedya – a bad man adored by pinko pseuds despite his involvement in nasty persecution of anti-communist patriots here.

    Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 – an extract which explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.

    =

    =

    Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him. (this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist  http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

    However, I’d be willing to bet a tenner that 90% of Brits, Aussies and Americans haven’t heard of Neruda…nor of Pramoedya.

    But the prissy ‘intellectual’ caste in all our countries will be aware of them.

    They are, after all, for the most part, more in touch and in tune with each other than they are with their own fellow-citizens.

    And certainly most Chileans will now have heard of Neruda, because there’s uproar there after some politicians decided what a wizard idea ‘twould be to give their airport  the name of the long-dead far-left louse.

    Sex-predators are generally frowned on, unless you are a pro-crimmigrant lawyer and the predator is a crimmigrant…

    …and it would be highly unlikely that even soft-on-crime Labour MPs in the UK, for example, would suggest that any new British airport be named after Fred West.

    But Chile’s something else, with a serious plan to honour a creep like Neruda, who not only raped his Asian maid but also felt quite at ease describing his violation of the girl.

    After the woman ignored his advances, Neruda says he took “a strong grip on her wrist” and led her to his bedroom.

    “The encounter was like that of a man and a statue. She kept her eyes wide open all the while, completely unresponsive,” he recalled.

    “She was right to despise me.”    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/23/chile-neruda-airport-rename-outrage-admitted-rape-memoirs

    Leftist rapist Neruda

    ———-

    And no doubt she did despise him, but her contempt for the sleazy slug (who served the regime of the marxist Allende in the 1970s) seems sadly not to be much shared by today’s effete politicos in the Chilean parliament.

    It’s really quite astounding.

    Imagine if there were a proposal to name a UK airport after some notorious British predator like Fred West.

    Not an exact parallel, of course. West didn’t just rape defenceless girls. he killed them.

    But suppose the Neruda’s victim had been big enough and brave enough to fight back? Would the red scribbler’s use of force have escalated?

    Yet the big difference is that West was more or less illiterate, while Neruda was of course, a ‘poet!’

    An ‘intellectual’ – and a leftwing ‘intellectual’ to boot!

    And as we have seen more than once…

      I have heard of Pramoedya, but only thanks to you.
      Neruda? Never.
      What you have written is interesting, using these dead villains to illustrate the detachment of the elites in every country, Western countries at least, from the everyday people who matter so much more than elites.
      I like the way you have done this.
      Thank you.

      There are a few ‘intellectuals’ who are not cosmopolitanised but a very few really.
      Most have no loyalty to their own countries, same with celebrities.
      What I dislike is that they are a very incestuous crowd.
      Look at how films are judged as good or not, unrelated to the number of tickets sold in cinemas but just on votes of their own kind who run things like the Cannes Festival.
      Look at the junk the intellectuals buy from other intellectuals to put in art galleries, using our money, not their own.
      Its just a racket.
